    Darth Wenley: Your second CZ-3 icon is wicked!! If that thing actually becomes available, I may have to change my JC name.

    Could there still be hope for CZ-3? Perhaps we will see Ben land in Mos Eisley before he heads to the Lars homestead. If so, we might catch a glance of CZ-3. :)

    *** Fans of R5-D4 Unite! ***

    R5-D4 has been doing extremely well in Droid Survivor and now it is down to the following Droids: R2-D2, R4-P17 and of course R5-D4... Help secure R5-D4's place in the finals and vote out R2-D2!

    So...

    The thread is silent. Debo is dwelling on memories. And Wenley has joined the Blue Yoda Society. (Excuse me for crossing movie lines here) When did Wenley the wise abandon wisdom for madness? My friends...R5 is still red and there is still much mystery to be discussed.

    How sad it was to read SW3's post of how the joke has gotten old. Well, there are a lot of old jokes I still laugh at. Like the one where you ask someone what's on their shirt and they look down and you bonk them in the nose. HA HA HA...that one gets me just thinking about it. Sometimes I even do that to myself just to get a laugh outta me. Whooo!

    How's this for questions...Who was that red droid that helped with the cleanup on Endor after the second Death Star blew up? And do you really think Wedge and Lando were responsible for that?

    And for you fans of the darker side...do you think the Tuskins just happened to find Shmi Skywalker out collecting mushrooms by the vaporators? I don't think so. Could R5 possibly be the reason behind the fall of Anakin Skywalker? Could he possibly be an agent of Palpatine abandoned to a fate of putting up with Tatooine Jawas after his job was done? hmmmm.

    Anyway, I'm back...and there are a million things we can do to kick this thread back into gear...but shutting it down is not something that needs to be done.

    Put out the call...Sandjo, Wenley, SW3, Horse_Droid, Debo, all those under the influence of the red...it's time to rise up and show the world that our yellow missiles aren't just for putting people's eyes out.

    What is so bad about me joining the BYS?! :p

    Lets give this thread a new motivator!

    R5-D4 is back in fashion! :cool:

    I might find the time to do some more "write-ups" ;)

    Ahh...Wenley my old friend. There is nothing wrong with you joining the BYS. It's just that (and excuse me for crossing movie lines again...it's just that I have been immersing myself in the LOTR extended edition lately.) There is but one Yoda...and he does not share color.

    No, I think it's cool that you are a part of that other movement. But, don't forget your roots. Once you start down the red path forever will it dominate your destiny.

    Anywho, whilst watching the ole Ep. II DVD the other day...I had a thought. What if Palpatine...knowing the average motivator lifespan of an R5 unit sent R5-D4 to Tatooine to lead a band of Tuskin Raiders to Shmi. Thinking that R5 would never last long enough to let anyone on his plan. Palps left him there to rust. Well, we all know what happened. R5 went on to get his revenge by blowing up not one but two Death Stars.

    Also, did you notice on the commentary that NOTHING was said about our hero. I chalk that up to reverence for the droid. All of the guys doing commentary were just so blown away with R5 they let the scene speak for itself.

    I will always remember my roots Honkin, this thread means so much to me... :p

    I even bought R5-D4 to the BYS... I'll talk a little more about what R5-D4 gets up to later... ;)

    A question: Are you guys going to be spoiled or spoiler free for Episode 3? [face_mischief]

    R5-D4 AND BLUE YODA

    Two Classic Images?.

    [image=http://www.asterix.co.nz/r5/pictures/images/15.gif]
    [image=http://www.asterix.co.nz/r5/pictures/images/16.jpg]

    Why can?t we get along?/>

    />

    In the beginning, there were two humor threads in the Attack of the Clones Forum



    These two threads lived in harmony, respecting one another and giving the AOTC Spoilers their daily humour intake.

    [image=http://www.asterix.co.nz/r5/pictures/images/12.gif]

    Then one May 2002 day, a user named chewycharmy posted the infamous yoda a different color thread.

    Very soon the new Blue Yoda Society started looking for new members.

    They had already spam attacked the Poof Thread and The_Nameless_one warned us of their imamate arrival.

    After annoying us to no end, and dooming our new thread in Miscellaneous, Outpost R5, they grew more responsible and put a stop to the postings in other threads.

    The three threads were able to make peace.

    [image=http://www.asterix.co.nz/blueyoda/images/r5.jpg]

    But that wasn?t the end of the R5-D4 and Blue Yoda history books.

    dArTh_wenley, a notible R5-D4er joined the BYS.

    Once his training was complete, he was awarded the title of The Magnificant Purple Headed Warrior of the BYS

    One of his first theories that he had had to do for his training was on the subject of R5-D4 turning blue?

    Darth Wenley?s CrAzY Blue Yoda Theory #2

    Blue Yoda Hid Inside R5-D4!


    Now, it is very certain that there will be a great ?Jedi Purge? or to put it in lamen terms, ?Jedi Mad Slaughter House?. It is also undeniable that Yoda will travel to dagobah to escape the ?Kill Frenzy?. Now the Yoda that we see on Dagobah his Green. Chewycharmy, the great prophet who we all owe so much tells us that Yoda is blue In Episode 3. The missing link between the two episodes is why Yoda becomes Green again on Dagobah.

    Assuming that Obi-wan drops off baby Luke on Tatooine, it would be safe to speculate that Yoda would come too, for the extra protection of the baby. It is there that Yoda finds R5-D4?
    Now, R5-D4 is always seen in different colours. Before Episode 2 he was Orange. When he was blown out into space, he turned red due to the heat, and we see a red R5 in Episode 2.

    [image=http://www.asterix.co.nz/r5/droids/06.jpg]

    Orange R5

    Yoda believed R5-D4 would be the best place to hide, for the timebeing. He lifted up R5?s dome and hopped inside? R5-D4 was now Blue!

    [image=http://www.asterix.co.nz/blueyoda/bluer5.gif]

    And he hid in R5-D4 for many years! Then R5-D4, and an innocent Gonk Droid (who had also turned blue from Yoda?s great power) were captured by Jawa?s?

    [image=http://www.asterix.co.nz/r5/pictures/images/09.gif]

    A few days later, R2-D2 was added to the Jawa?s droid collection. Yoda could sense the great blueness that R2-D2 possessed, and realised that he could be utilised. But R2?s blueness came at a price. R2 absorbed all the blueness of anyone in his presence, including Yoda. It was here that Yoda returned to Green.

    We all know when R5-D4 ?blows his motivator?. In fact, he is not blowing his motivator at all! It is simply Yoda (lets call him Skippy ;) ) emerging out of R5-D4 and venturing into R2-D2.

    He stays in R2 until R2 falls into the swamp at Dabobah. And then we all know what happens from then on?

    Honkin! Welcome back! (P.S. Thanks for the PM Wenley).

    Yes, it is good to see activity on the Good News thread (as well as seeing alot of the regulars back).

    I too am now associated with the BYS. Although I haven't had any time to devote to my Padawan tasks lately [face_mischief]
    Just another member loyal to good ole Red who has learned to co-exist with the Blue.
